I wanted to quickly post this recipe for watermelon basil smoothy. I found it on Jen Hansen’s Flickr page while searching for raw food recipes (her picture looks much more appetizing then mine). When I first read the list of ingredients I thought it sounded rather bizarre, and well, sort of gross. Despite these first impressions I decided to give it a try anyway. I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised by this nasty looking drink. It looks like slimy swamp sludge but tastes s00000 good! If you’ve never tried it before, I strongly recommend you do (just close your eyes when you drink it).
about 2 cups watermelon chunks
two handfuls of baby spinach
small bunch of fresh basil
about 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Blend all ingredients and enjoy.
